Description of Program
Utsunomiya University's Department of Optical Engineering was founded in 2008 to gather together optics researchers in one place, and to provide education in optics for students entering the many optics-related industries in Japan. The program has attracted students from all over the world, including Mexico, Malaysia, and India, and holds cooperative agreements with over 10 other universities worldwide. The department also enjoys close relationships with the local optics industry. The Department of Optical Engineering currently offers the following degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Optical Engineering (beginning in 2017); Master of Science in Optical Engineering; PhD in Advanced Interdisciplinary Sciences with a focus on Optical Sciences.
